Both Duffy and Rogers said that the village does not have the staffing to assign an officer there full-time.
“It’s important that all Warren County agencies participate in the drug task force because it provides better resources over a wider range,” Rogers said. “The Drug Task Force is a good idea because it brings local, state and federal resources together and works well as a group.”
The Warren County Drug Task Force is a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area initiative and multi-jurisdictional unit specializing in the investigation of drug trafficking, prescription drug diversion, money laundering and other drug related crimes. The task force provides a variety of services to Warren County and other jurisdictions throughout southwest Ohio, according to its website.
The Drug Task Force’s mission is to conduct a coordinated strategy to significantly reduce drug trafficking and related criminal offenses that impact our jurisdiction. The collaboration of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies through the HIDTA program create a better coordinated effort to address all levels of drug trafficking and abuse with a concentrated effort toward mid to upper level offenders, according to the website.
